LXer: DistroWatch Weekly: Mandriva's financial concerns, Fedora 7 Test1, Freespire "madness"

Published at LXer:

Welcome to this year's 6th issue of DistroWatch Weekly! As usual, this week's issue focuses on a variety of distributions and topics. We'll start with a frightening financial analysis of Mandriva Corporation whose most recent financial results were published last week. The news section then looks at the release process of the Fedora Project whose latest -- and incomplete -- test release came, once again, without any release notes or other useful information. Also in the news: Ubuntu has quietly scrapped the idea of including the 3D desktop in Feisty Fawn, openSUSE and Linspire brace for surprise announcements, Red Hat's Matthew Szulik has kind words to say about Linus Torvalds, and Nexenta announces plans to produce more frequent development releases. Finally, we are pleased to announce that the DistroWatch January 2007 donation has been awarded to the GQview and Kaffeine projects. Happy reading!

Okey, I'm Mandriva user. So how does it impact me if Mandriva Corporation goes down?
I think not very much. What would i miss if Mandriva stops. I use 10.1 official version and i have almost anything i need. I think for the end user the news is no bother. And if comp. goes down there will be someone to take it over and restart it or whatever.
I just can't seem to see if that 'bad' news would have negative impact on Mandriva users.
Any ideas? comments?
